Textile Formatting Tutorial

    Can anyone give me a good rundown of how to do things in textile? I've read the various textile guides and such, but I'm having a hard time getting certain things to look right, like putting line breaks between things like bulleted lists. Also, formatting tables so there's more space between the columns. Just some of the stuff that is beyond just the basics. It seems like I saw something like this before, but I can't seem to find it. I would love to see exactly how some of those awesome looking character sheets were done.

    Also, Micah, the Textile help you have on the right hand side has the wrong formatting for tables. You need a pipe (|) at the beginning and end of each row, not just between the row elements.

    @|Thing 1|Thing 2|Thing 3|@


    @Thing 1|Thing 2|Thing 3@

    Also, I figured out that you can do code blocks by putting an @ at the beginning and end of a line.

    I think I will change the Textile links to point to this place:

    Their reference is much better than the "type in textile and see it as HTML" on Textism.

    Anyways, thanks for the note about the table structure. I'll update the quick-help sidebar.

    I would second that change in the textile links, Micah. Kanis and I have that one bookmarked for reference and we do find it more thorough than the Textism one.
